    In the Realm of Forgotten Love

    The darkness conquers as it advances,
    In vain they battle, Only to fall back,
    The castle of the realm looms in the distance,
    Waiting for the fog too clear.

    The sun shines with a dismal light,
    Through smoke and clouds, Chaos shines,
    Yet for now the realm holds strong,
    Waiting for the hero and the rescue foretold.

    She stands at the window hoping for a sign,
    The valley below, A view of the carnage,
    She wonders where he is, why this should be,
    Could the one of legend not remember, Not care.

    The walls are falling, The gate breached,
    Bodies fill the moat, Yet still they advance,
    As the sun is setting, She watches from her tower,
    Off in the distance she see's a light....

    Chorus:
    Darkness lies in the shadows of life,
    In the sands of lost time,
    Standing idly by, Watching love slowly die,
    In a realm of forgotten love.

    In the realm of forgotten love, is the light from above? Or on distant horizon, to glide as a dove? Did it originate from without, or was perceived within? Has it's hastening been restrained by sin? A great write that inspires invention!

    Cool! I'd love to hear this put to music! I can't help but to wonder what inspired this one.

    I liked this - it was very real to me, your words paint such a sad picture but offer room for hope!

    How sad the thought of her waiting faithfully for the one she believes would save her...sadder if her belief is baseless. I think not, though, because you gave me hope in the light she sees off in the distance. We all have a Light we depend on and it illuminates through the darkest hour. Good story. MSV

    This is amazing! It, too, is inspiring. Makes me want to sit and think about life...

    Poetry is what gets lost in translation.
